'Savage Love', monogamy, and me

by Jeremy Hooper

Dan Savage received a "Savage Love" letter from a young man who took issue with Dan's stated monogamish views, and felt I could add some extra perspective to the response. I want to thank Dan for this really unique opportunity (and for the very kind words), and hope you'll check out what we both have to say:

I could respond to your letter by my lonesome, SFMCN, taking pains to reassure you that, yes, there are gay men Screen Shot 2012-06-20 At 4.07.20 Pm out there in successful, long-term, monogamous relationships. But I think hearing from one of those gay men directly would be more valuable. So I passed your letter on to Jeremy Hooper, a writer, author, and LGBT rights advocate. Hooper regularly breaks news at Good As You, his must-read blog, and his first book, If It’s a Choice, My Zygote Chose Balls: Making Sense of Senseless Controversy, was released earlier this month. Hooper is married and he and his husband are monogamous. Hooper's response is after the jump.
